As one of Coventry's biggest employers, we offer some pretty impressive benefits including an excellent pension scheme and generous holiday allowances.
The centre for Computational Science and Mathematical Modelling (CSM) is
seeking to employ an ambitious researcher on a full-time permanent position as
Assistant Professor in Machine Learning and Computer Vision.
Candidates should have postdoctoral experience and an excellent publication
record with expertise in the general area of Machine Learning, with a focus on
Computer Vision, Signal Processing for machine perception, and Deep Learning.
This can include, but is not limited to: image/video processing for autonomous
vehicles, multi-sensor data fusion applications, medical image processing,
biometrics applications (such as iris, fingerprint, face recognition), real-
time object detection in videos for surveillance applications, hyperspectral
image processing, digital watermarking, radar image processing, human/target
detection and tracking.
Previous experience in the development and implementation of real-world
applications involving traditional and state-of-the-art image/signal
processing algorithms, deep and transfer learning methods, and large-scale
data analytics is desirable.
The Centre for Computational Science and Mathematical Modelling has a vocation
to link fundamental scientific research with the solution of current societal
problems, as for example outlined in the UN's Strategic Development Goals.
Solving global challenges relies to a greater or lesser extent on advances in
and the application of Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Mathematical
Modelling. The centre has a mission to provide fundamental and applied
research in these areas to the wider scientific community to enable the
emergence of novel and timely solutions to well specified real-life problems.
The current position will grow the area of computer vision in the centre,
which is an essential area in data engineering, as real-time computer vision
is now embedded in many aspects of real life. There are significant
algorithmic (machine learning/data science) limitations that need to be
